I was on my way to cover two festivals and I thought I would take the scenic route. I have always loved walking through this beautiful place and am amazed every trip at the creatures that call this place home. I must have taken many hundreds of shots of Wood Ducks but even at age 56 I never get tired of seeing them. If you were given a blank duck and a paint set I doubt anyone could make them any prettier. This is a particularly busy time of year for this place as it serves as a rest stop for many migrating birds. It is also a time of year when everything here is lush and offers a vast array of deep colours. Even the squirrels seem a bit more friendly. It is such a pleasure to live this close to such a wonderful oasis, every trip offers the chance to see something different if you walk just slowly enough and take the time to look. As always enjoy Toronto and take a walk in the park! Just don’t mess with this guy!
